Bamboo poles and thatch are traditionally used to enhance one’s home or business throughout the entire year. Did you know that bamboo poles and thatch can also be used as eco-friendly Halloween decorations? There are a number of ways you and your family can get creative this Halloween season. Decorating your home can bring the family together and spark some creativity. Today, we have a few ideas that will get all the neighborhood kids gathered at your home.
Skull Tiki Torch
If you are planning on building a haunted house in your front yard, consider a haunted Luau theme! Bamboo poles are flexible, durable, and affordable, making for the perfect haunted addition. You can use a 5 or 8 foot decorative bamboo pole as the body and attach small pieces in thatch around the top with glue or twine. Complete the body by attaching a skull and placing the pole anywhere in your yard.
Pumpkin Hula Characters
Every home needs at least one Jack O’ Lantern to really bring in the Halloween spirit. When looking for a pumpkin, make sure to purchase a larger one for decoration purposes. Measure the pumpkin and cut thatch accordingly to make a hula skirt. Paint a face for your pumpkin and glue some Hawaiian flowers for a finishing touch.
Cousin It from the Adams Family
Make your very own classic Cousin It from the popular movie The Adams Family. All you need is a tomato cage, thatch, sunglasses, and a top hat. Carefully apply a layer of thatch over the tomato cage. For a lusher look, apply two layers of thatch and tie the top hat and sunglasses to the body. This kid friendly decoration will get everyone talking about your decorated home.
Bamboo Pole Limbo Decoration
Every Luau party needs at least one game of limbo for your guests, even skeleton guests! Use three bamboo poles as the limbo sticks and arrange decorative skeletons around the limbo game. You can get even more creative and hang decorative spiders and skulls from the bamboo poles.
This Halloween, go eco-friendly with your decorations and get the entire family involved. Share your project with us by emailing pictures for a chance to be featured on our website!
